Item/Description: Vintage ca 1960s-1970s “Hava Nagila” Jewish song, folk singing children ceramic figural animated motion music box.
The three (3) figural children featured on this delightfully charming hand-painted revolving music box somewhat facially resemble Hummel & Goebel figures/figurines.
The trio consists of folk singers/musicians - two darling girls and one adorable boy. The boy and one of the girls is standing behind the second seated girl who is gaily strumming on her guitar. The tune played as the upper, topmost portion of the music box moves around in circles is the festively joyful musical Judaic-themed tune of “Hava Nagila” (a Jewish/Hebrew anthem).

Condition Summary: Good vintage collectible condition! Handpainted coloration remains vibrant, musical tone is lovely, and music box mechanism functions properly and smoothly. There are no breaks, cracks or repairs. Noted condition factors consist of a handful of surface grazes and nicks, some red paint rub-off onto the guitar girls face, and what appears to be a linear black pen mark on the side of her face, however none of these in any way diminish from the desirability, collectibility, displayability or musical enjoyability of this fabulous piece!
Excerpted Online Research Information About “Hava Nagila” (Havanagila) (attributed to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hava_Nagila ): “Hava Nagila” (Havah Nagilah, "Let us rejoice") is a Jewish traditional folk song in Hebrew, that has become a staple of band performers at Jewish weddings and Bar/Bat Mitzvahs.
The melody was taken from a folk dance-song from Bucovina, in the north of Romania (a variant of Hora). It uses the Phrygian dominant scale common in music of Romania. The melody of the anthem of Israel was also taken from a Romanian folk song. The commonly used text was probably composed by Abraham Zevi (Zvi) Idelsohn in 1918 to celebrate the British victory in Palestine during World War I as well as the Balfour Declaration. Psalm 118 (verse 24) of the Hebrew Bible was the source of Hava Nagila.
Notable versions of this song have been performed by these famous entertainers: Harry Belafonte; Brave Combo; Glen Campbell; Chubby Checker; Carmela Corren; Celia Cruz; Dick Dale and the Del Tones (surf rock); Neil Diamond; Dream Theater; Bob Dylan; Irving Fields; Four Jacks and a Jill; Lena Horne; John Lord of Deep Purple”
